About the Artwork
Paper Digital Reproductions
|Our canvas giclées are made using UV-stable inks ( Epson UltraChrome K3 or Roland) and museum quality canvas, come coated with a UV-inhibitor and can be displayed in the same fashion as oil or acrylic canvas artwork. However it is recommended that they, like all fine artwork, not be displayed in direct sunlight. These canvas reproductions can be individually enhanced by the artist for an additional cost.||

aper giclées have a white border that varies based on the size of the paper.
In displaying your paper giclée, it is recommended that it be mounted using acid-free materials, framed behind glass or equivalent, and not be exposed to water or displayed in direct sunlight. These reproductions come signed by the artist, numbered, and documented. A signed, stamped, and dated certificate is available upon request at no additional cost.
Offset Lithographic Prints
These prints are manufactured using a photo-mechanical process called offset lithography. While improvements over the years in inks and paper have made these images increasingly more stable, it is highly recommended that to best maintain color, this art not be exposed to direct sunlight, intensive artificial or ultraviolet light, or moisture, and framed using a protective pane, the best being glass treated with ultraviolet protection. Sizes vary from 20" x 24" to 18" x 30"; the images are seated with margins, some come with captions, and some with historic text. Serio-lithographs (we have a few) are offset lithographs that have made an additional pass through a silk screen process.
These prints come signed by the artist (personalized signatures are available upon request).
Certificates for digital reproductions (canvas and paper giclées) are available upon request at no additional charge. They include the artist's signature, date, recorded number of the giclée, and are stamped by the artist's seal. Most certificates include a description of the scene or a historical summary of the depicted event.
